'Mystery creature' filmed by Sydney family

Could this be a seal, a shark, or something else ? Image Credit: Fethi Ada
65-year-old Fethi Ada and his family had been out fishing when they encountered something rather unusual.
The unidentified creature, which surfaced unexpectedly near to their boat in the Hawkesbury River for around 10 seconds, has been described by the family as 'very strange'.

"It looked human the way it lifted its head up," said Ada. "It looked over towards us like 'who are these people ?' My brother threw some bait in and then it just got scared off."

Despite the family's concerns however, the sighting may have a rather mundane explanation.

"It's rare you actually get to see many (animals) as they stay below the surface," said Secretary of Hawkesbury River Rescue, Felicity Brownrigg. "My guess would be that it is a seal."

Looks like a turtle but years ago they caught a very large croc in the Nepean  river which runs into the Hawkesbury,a long way south of their usual habitat.

I will always click on "films something strange", haha. But that does just look like a sea turtle. Some of the loggerheads are enormous.
